Masterpiece Episode: "The Lost Prince"

Season 34, Episode 1
Episode Synopsis: Part 1 of “The Lost Prince,” a lavish two-part biopic of Queen Elizabeth II's epileptic and learning-disabled uncle, John (Daniel Williams and Matthew Thomas), whose short life (1905-19) paralleled the dissolution of European royalty's gilded age. Prince John was “lost” to history because he was kept hidden from public view because of his odd behavior, which is apparent as the drama opens, in 1908.
